I would add that the way Charles personally closed one of those threads was incredibly original (posted some outrageous german punk video as reply to someone getting on his nerves - it was a lot of fun reading through astonished reactions of forum readers and Charles was banned once and for all for that little outburst - but it's fair to say at least he went out in style :veryevil: 

 

Sounds hilarious! I wish I had been around to see that video and the drama. Bless Charles. He's a gifted engineer who has given me, via the Tera, immense joy.

For example, i hated the AK100 shuffle function because it just took like 30 songs and repeated them all the time. You had to manually change the song to get another shuffle loop....another very tiny shuffle loop. Made me mad....

thx
I have no clue as I never use it. But the latest algorithm update solved it. Need to send the Tera back though and I would not.

Charles did install the new random play algorithm on my Tera-Player and it has improved the randomness immensly. I hardly ever hear a repeat. I typically use the random play mode for nearly all my listening.

Here is the thread dedicated to workarounds around the original Tera random (not so random) algorithm (however reading this would make me consider sending the Tera back to be updated by Charles now that he has a better algorithm).

That's too bad but not surprising. I wish he offered to do the update even if he charges for it - he will eventually have to offer some type of update/upgrade program when the batteries of early Tera's start dying.

Which strangely enough poses an interesting dilemma: Tera is as reliable as a hammer. I bet if anyone out there has had a problem, it turned out to be an issue with the card... If only we could count on warranty work to spur our upgrades!!!

Soooooo no? That's interesting I thought there would be at least one person in California that had one of these. Comments and user reviews seems good but I can't buy anything that I haven't auditioned for myself.

I did have a warranty issue...my plugs were very loose. This happened only in very early Tera's but Charles repaired the jacks and accomplished the updates at no charge and did it overnight. I have no worries about warranty support!

I use Tera as practically Military-spec equipment at work ( where minor dropping, static shock, and vibration are constant hazards), gym, skiing, yard work, skateboarding and really just a tough life in general. I have only one great fear. I honestly think Tera can take all the abuse I give it, but shudder to think what might happen if its actually dropped INTO the beer I'm drinking , or the saltwater on which I sail. Sometimes this fear even has me leave Tera in the car when near water or sailing, so perhaps beer is the greatest threat of all!

so, if i buy a second hand Tera, V0 version, does Charles do some updating, or am i mistaken?
